Information and Communication Engineering

The next-generation power grid needs a highly reliable communication and control system. We are confirming the performance of IP network for the system from various viewpoints.

We investigate the robustness of our communication lines, which include evaluation of deterioration of optical fiber cables. We also examine properties of radio communications through trials in our anechoic chamber or in the field for expanding the application in our business.
